1 out of 5 stars Castrum

Nice thin seam, but too short for any stars really. Maybe 35', not 50' as Miramontes has it. I placed three pieces, 00 and 0 Metolius and .75 C4. That was bomber pro where you needed it. Worth doing if you are on the wall.

Climbed as a TR after Tradrenn led. I climbed, fell, and hung, several times before working my way to the top.
